Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★½

Promising Young Woman takes the trope of the femme fatale and gives it an interesting twist. An engaging story involving revenge and a nice little machiavellian touch of psychological manipulation. Really emotional and evoking, with shocker after shocker. Gotta love the subtlety, the attention to details and the neat visual storytelling. A great cast; it's always nice to see Alfred Molina and trans representation.

I won´t spoil it but I do recommend watching it since it handles a very important topic really well and goes to show how easily some people dismiss traumatic events until it happens to them or someone close to them. A bittersweet portrait of issues derived and perpetuated by patriarchal thoughts and practices. It's a delicate subject matter but perfectly merged with its dark-toned humor to make it work marvelously.

Excellent film, with so much soul it's pouring.
